A homage to the wildlife and mountain people of Benedicte Maurseth's home area in Hardanger. The acclaimed and innovative visionary musician Benedicte Maurseth is coming forth with the wonderful all-consuming album Hárr.

The sound of her magic Hardanger fiddle is woven seamlessly together with that of birds and the other musicians' musical impressions.

Always moving forward with a steely calm disposition, the record draws you into a world where one feels to be one with nature, wandering over a mountain plateau.

Benedicte was raised in Maurset in Eidfjord and has hiked through the mountains her whole life, clearly laying the foundation for this musical expedition.

As traditional folk musicians have always been, Maurseth is open to contemporary influences from interactive art and music styles.

The work Hárr oscillates between Norwegian folk tunes, free improvised music, American minimalism, and extensive use of musique concrète.

In the tracks you will also hear natural soundscapes via the shufflings of reindeer, reindeer herders, birds and insects all recorded in Hardangervidda.
